Slow down when passing emergency vehicles or face a fine
Drivers in Victoria will face big fines if they do not slow to 40 kilometres per hour when passing emergency vehicles with flashing lights or sirens that have stopped on the roadside.
When emergency or enforcement vehicles are displaying flashing red, blue or magenta lights, or sounding their alarm, drivers must:
- Approach at a speed that allows the driver to stop, if necessary, before passing the vehicle and give way to any emergency or enforcement worker on foot in the vicinity;
- Not drive past or over take the vehicle at a speed of more than 40kh/h;
- Not increase speed until the driver is a sufficient distance past the vehicle to not cause danger to workers in the immediate vicinity.
